Günter Brus

Selbstbemalung/(Kopfzumalung) Self-Painting/(Total Head Painting), 1964

Gelatin silver print on baryta paper, 30 x 23 cm

“Watching the community come together, watching all these black folks rallying together because they want justice…I think this is a radical expression of black love that I don’t know if people understand it to be so, but that’s exactly what it is. So they are being framed in horrible ways but at the core what’s going on in Ferguson is about love. It’s about loving one another so much that you’re willing to face tear gas and bullets because you want to protect each other.”
